So you’re going to take the plunge and grow a beard. Is this your first time? We’re happy to share with you a few tips to keeping you and your beard looking great with the help of some organic, natural and vegan products.
It all started with …. stubble
Once your beard started to grow, you’re going to find it all pretty itchy, this is partly due to it’s unique skill of gathering dirt and dead skin, bet you’d rather not know that fact!
Cleansing Is Key – To keep skin clean, both above and under your beard, use a soap or facewash that is mild and gentle. We have Friendly Soap, providing amazing soap bars for facial use that are all about being kind to the skin, as well as other excellent face care products for men.
Exfoliation Is Essential – As well as removing dead skin and keeping the skin under your beard in tip top shape, exfoliation will reduce the risk of ingrown hairs. To treat yourself to exfoliation and moisturisation, try Heavenly Organics facial scrubs.
Speaking Of Moisture – Your beard will thank you deeply for a good moisturizer. You’ll get some relief from the itchy feeling, and a few drops of beard oil will ensure everything is soft and smooth. PS – It’ll also make sure you don’t lose your kissability!
Wow, Your Beard Is Great
Success at last! Your beard is now in its fine fledgling state, but you’re not done yet. If you want your beard to keep up its great reputation, it needs care and attention.
Keep Things Super Clean – Your beard is going to pick up surrounding smells, dirt and even a bit of food and drink, so keeping it clean is crucial. You’re aiming for an attractive smell, not a nasty one!
Keep it trimmed as this can really help your beard look fantastic. There are a smorgasbord of trimmers out there and wise beards has a great selection of the best.
Conventional shampoos that contain ingredients such as sodium lauryl sulphate should be avoided, they cause far too much foam, something that can lead to dry skin and irritation. By all means use these shampoos for your head hair, but not for your beard! Each of the shampoos we offer are gentle foamers, so they are good for your face as well, however we do recommend that you check out the Friendly Soap Shampoo Bar. It is crammed with butters and oils to keep your beard clean, and rest assured it’s a traditional, palm oil soap bar, free from synthetic chemicals.
Condition To Perfection – Conditioning on a regular basis is a necessity if you want to avoid that unattractive frizzy appearance. Washing with water alone can make your beard dry and depleted of natural oils. Even beards can suffer from split ends, conditioning reduces the risk, as well as keeping your beard soft and tidy. Our Heavenly Organics Skin Care is a great option, but you can also try an unfragranced option, or make your own by mixing any of the following oils: Argan, Coconut Sunflower, Sweet Almond, Hemp or Jojoba.
